Ella Study startup created by an alumni who studied abroad: Đỗ Xuân Khoa

Ella Study startup has been created by a vietnamese who studied abroad: Đỗ Xuân Khoa.

Graduated from a Master in Marketing (University of Linnaeus in Sweden) and after six years spent in education, Đỗ Xuân Khoa has decided to create its startup. Indeed, he has realized that vietnamese students are not well advised. Specifically, it is difficult for them to identify the right university program. More importantly, Ella Study brings to vietnamese students a psychological support by connecting them to other students and alumni.

In september 2017, Ella Study has launched its beta version. The platform is already used by 500 members and 30 sponsors are listed. The startup business model is a P2P based model (between users) and its revenues come from consulting time (10 $/30 minutes), advertisement and use of additional tools proposed to students who want to study abroad.
